Privacy in Wearable Devices and Mobile Apps

This project examines privacy issues related to wearable devices and mobile apps, with an emphasis on their uses in the context of health and wellness.  This research on wellness programs touches on the role of devices and apps in health-related “big data,” workplace privacy, and the privacy and ethical issues raised by the use of various techniques designed to increase the number of people providing data and the amount of data provided by each individual. It also examines device and app data flows and data quality for the intended uses.
